Very happy to see another installment from you! I can definitely understand Mark's frustration. The whole jump process seems very intangible, at least to me. Better the long way around, than having their molecules scattered across the universe, or crushed into infinity.

Eeps. Definitely sympathize with Mark on this one. Frustrating having to trust a fuzzy black box. Can't open it. Can't even define the ins and outs.
Reminds me of trying to convince a TA that it was faster, and more accurate, to do error analysis by asking the spreadsheet I did the rest of the math with, "What is the result if I increase X by the measurement error?" instead of partial derivatives of nasty interconnected equations and assume it's a straight line.
Mark's smarter than the TA.
Next challenge: Can Jason play with the inputs? If we suspect this sensor, and the true number is between x and y, what are the possible results?
And why does a fanfic story bring up classes I took 20 years ago?
